What is Angel Tree?

Angel Tree is an incredible way to give to a child (or “Angel”) in need. Generous donors adopt children (or “Angels”) and provide them with Personalized gifts to help make the holidays a special time.









How Can My Company or Organization Get Involved?

Much of the support for Angel Tree comes from local businesses and organizations that adopt multiple angels as a way to give back to people in their community. Whether you want to adopt five Angels or 50, this support makes Angel Tree possible.

If you are interested in adopting Angels this Christmas, click the button below to complete an Angel adoption form today.

Reach out to Andy Amick with any questions! Andy.Amick@usc.salvationarmy.org

Program History

Every Christmas there are children who go without because their families are
struggling financially.

The Salvation Army’s Angel Tree program has been running for more than 30 years to
ensure that these children and their families can still have a joyful holiday season.
The Salvation Army Indiana Division has been providing Christmas assistance to our
community for generations.

We were proud to introduce the Angel Tree program to our
area in 2015. Many children in our community return to school after the holidays in worn-out uniforms, insufficient winter clothing, or without necessary school supplies.

Angel Tree is a traditional Salvation Army program designed to enable community
members to personally provide these vital items to specific children in need.
Please contact us at INDAngelTree@usc.salvationarmy.org with any
questions you have about Angel Tree.





How Is Angel Tree Different From Other Programs?

Angel Tree is different from other holiday assistance programs because a sponsor is able to feel a special connection with his/her “adopted” child.

The sponsor receives the child’s first name and a personalized list of needs and wishes for their child.  Other holiday assistance programs host generic toy drives or give sponsors minimal information about what would be an ideal gift for the child they’ll be giving to.

With Angel Tree, the wish list given to the sponsor is thoughtfully prepared by the child’s parents, so the sponsor knows that they’ll be buying something the child both needs and will be excited to open on Christmas morning.




How Can I Become An Angel Volunteer?

As you can imagine, it takes hundreds of volunteer hours to make Angel Tree happen.

From helping shoppers adopt Angels at the mall to sorting bags and helping families on distribution day, volunteers are essential to a successful Angel Tree program.
